  • OSS/IOSS Reporting - If you sell goods or services to EU B2C consumers and plan to register for the UE One Stop Shop and Import One Stop Shop schemes, the new OSS/IOSS Reporting feature helps you manage this. You can set up relevant tax codes, flag invoices and orders for OSS/IOSS and set country and scheme information. You can then use the new OSS/IOSS reports to collate the information you need for your EU VAT Return. Read more >

  • VAT improvements - We've made a series of improvements to help when dealing with VAT:
    • VAT Label name changes to reflect the HMRC changes from 1 April 2021. We've also updated the VAT reports to reflect these changes.
    • Making Tax Digital (MTD) - New companies are MTD-enabled by default, and non-MTD VAT submissions are now blocked in line with HMRC changes from 1 April 2021.
    • A new tax code to make it easy to post non-UK zero rated purchases when you're not using postponed accounting. Find out more >
